Panther Pantry

Just In: Gloves, scarves, hats and warm socks for winter weather.

Food insecurity can be found anywhere—even on a college campus. Adelphi’s Panther Pantry can help, providing vulnerable members of our community with basic food items, free of charge. The pantry addresses other needs, too, offering personal care products, clothing and household items. All are free for the asking. Just drop by the pantry or order online from our virtual menu. Either way, we’ll protect your privacy, as all pantry use is confidential.

A Physical Location and Virtual Menu

Physical Location

The pantry is located on the lower level of Residence Hall A. Staffed by volunteers, it is open Tuesdays, 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and Wednesdays, 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Come at those times to meet with volunteers and University chaplains and select the items you need.

Virtual Menu

If you do not wish to visit the pantry, you can order items online by going to eCampus and selecting the Panther Pantry icon. Orders can be picked up in the Post Hall mailroom on weekdays, 9 am to 4:30 pm. You’ll receive a notification when your items are ready, but you’ll need to collect them within three days.

How Can You Help?


While the pantry doesn’t accept food donations, you can help by offering financial support. We accept cash as well as checks made payable to Adelphi University, with “Panther Pantry” written on the memo line. Donations should be delivered to Carol Lucas, Office of the Associate Dean of Student Affairs, Nexus Building, Room 308. Employees can also donate by making a charitable gift by payroll deduction.


The pantry relies on volunteers to staff our physical location, distribute food, take orders and shelve items. If you’re interested in helping out, contact the Division of Student Affairs at 516.877.3660 or

Get the Word Out

Help us make sure that everyone in our community knows about the pantry. Tell your friends and encourage those you know who may need assistance. Pantry use is confidential because our goal is to reach as many people as possible who are in need by respecting and supporting them.
